"Aspect-Oriented Programming" - Jonathan Daniel of Wellspring Software

There are several software engineering problems that cannot be solved using procedural or object oriented programming practices. When implemented these problems produce unmanageable and complex code resulting in unforeseen bugs. Often the first draft of a function is simple to understand and easy to maintain but as requirements change and evolve the code becomes increasingly complex. A program is often created to perform a single duty but as needs change the program is extended to perform additional tasks. Aspect-Oriented Programming (AOP) was developed to address these problems by providing a structured way to allow the program to evolve with the requirements.

A PDF copy of Jonathan's slides is now available.
